ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the findings of a survey which studied the impacts of the Internet and other electronic channels on logistics and transportation. Only 11 percent of survey respondents said they were using an Internet marketplace to trade with other businesses. The study argues that many commercial and public Internet initiatives are being driven by hype and consultants' advice rather than clear business logic. The aim of the research was to asses the ways in which the Internet has been, and is, impacting upon current management practices in each of three different areas of business. These are the impact of electronic commerce on marketing and sales management, the impact on internal organizational management and the impact on supply chain management.
